Fine hostel - would stay here again. The bar is very noisy at nights but they stop completely early enough so thats ok. One thing irritated me and that was louzy internet in my room at the 3rd floor. This hostel is obviously professinal business and they should be able to do better.
Stayed in a double private room for two nights which was right by the bar so if you had to wait until at least 11.30pm for it to be quiet. Beds comfortable enough abs locker inside the room. Bathrooms were clean. Last night was in a dorm which was ok, door didn't lock properly though. Breakfast menu was really good which was the most positive thing about my stay
A great hostel for a lone traveller as there is always an event on to make it easy to meet people. Also has a great rooftop bar that's lots of fun. Just don't expect peace and quiet when staying here, but if you're looking for fun, it's the place for you.
Super fun bar at the hostel and staff were so helpful and friends. The bed was really comfy! Super soft sheets. Need to bring your own lock to lock things up.
Awesome hostel..staff are great and very helpful. Easy to get to from the airport $8 tuk tuk maybe 30-45 min ride. Tours are great we definitely recommend the atv tour and prices are great in the reatraunt! Would stay at again for sure.
Staff was very helpful in checking into our bus connection even though we didn't book it through them.

Would 100% recommend to anyone staying in Phnom Penh. Great place, great food and great staff!
After reading the thousands of reviews we were so keen to stay here but I was disappointed :( -the staff when checking in were rude and showed no interest in helping us know the area. -there is no key to the dorm.. -we were booked into the wrong dorm and the staff argued with us. -dorms are so noisy especially next to the bar upstairs. -location is very far from the main river front. -food was awesome once tried the same the next day and it was so poor! Anyway, I wouldn't recommend!

Staff are super friendly. Defs a party vibe here which really wasn't what we were after because we only spent 2 nights, so had to be up early to do things. The rooms were good with sockets & comfy beds. If you are near the bar then bring ear plugs if you want sleep
This has to be the best hostel we have stayed in so far. The staff are brilliant, dorms are clean with ensuites, very large lockers and comfy beds. If you stay here I suggest you try the food, everything we had was fantastic! Also give the bbq a go on Tuesday's and Fridays! Very good value ✌️
We stayed in the 10 bed dorm, which is huge, so it doesn't feel crowded at all. It's right next to the bar, but we could never hear it. However, if you went into the bar, it was loud and lively, very easy to meet new travelers!
Okay place depending on what you're looking for. Great bar obviously and staff there is peppy and friendly. However staff at main desk were a bit offputting on arrival. After getting in on night bus from siem reap room wasn 't ready and bathrooms available were across the street for a shower and changing. Bags all stored in one big unlocked room, not great security in a place like phnom Penh. However I do believe the hostel has a good cause and staff training, the city just has a ways to go
The female dorm was comfy and clean. Definitely a great place to meet fellow travellers!
We stayed in a private room near the bar. The room was very clean and the bed very confort. Internet and AC working very well. The noise at the bar finish kind early (near 11pm) and does not affec our sleep. Staff very helpfull and nice. Good english. The restaurant food was really good. We really enjoyied our stay there. We recommend!
Nice and clean hostel, comfy beds. Liked the bar and the restaurant, really nice drinks and food only maybe a little bit expensive.. best place to meet people. Would definitely stay here again.
Great hostel with rooftop bar in a great location! Plenty of good restaurants nearby and the hostel has it's own tuk tuk drivers to take you to the killing fields etc. Would stay again for sure!
Great facility, staff, and happy hour! I would still recommend staying closer to the river as it's a lot more vibrant.
